states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind
distrust and resentment of the united states can be traced to the mexican war. the mexican war also hastened the civil war. it might not have been fought if the mexican war had not opened the volatile slavery debate. now, the mexican war's often confused with the texan war for independence from mexico ten years earlier in 1836. the texas revolution is known for the battles of the alamo and san ha sin toe -- ha seen toe and the exploits of sam houston and davy crockett. the mexican war is known as polk's war. the 11th president, james k. polk, supervised it from its beginning in may 1846 to the treaty signing 21 months later. the peace treaty transferred 530,000 square miles from mexico to the united states, incredible territory. from mexico we obtained the future states of california, new mexico, arizona, nevada, utah and parts of colorado and wyoming. literally 42% of mexico's territory at that time. the major battles were fought at palo alto, monterey and buena vista, the gates of mexico city. always outnumbered, the americans won every major battle. sometimes, as in buena vista,

for the absolute, full, and complete end of slavery. you know, every slave in the united states immediately. and the people who are very active in this movement are often devout protestants, blacks and whites, men and women, people from all parts of the united states. but we must always remember that this is a small number of people. this was never a mainstream movement. this was never a mass movement. and students from our perspective today -- you know, when we look back at this, we would say, well, of course slavery should end. of course slavery should be abolished. you know, all thinking adults today would agree on that. and slavery is illegal everywhere now. the last country to abolish slavery was actually saudi arab arabia, which abolished slavery in 1962. 1962, not 1862. so it's been a long, hard struggle. but slavery is illegal now everywhere. but to say these things in the 1830s and '40s and '50s took a lot of courage. this took a lot of guts. this is not mainstream opinion. this is going against mainstream opinion. these people are at the cutting edge of reform. these people are in

, from all over the united states. not just from states with big slave populations, which is what we might expect, but even in free states. in states where slavery had been abolished during a revolution or soon after the revolution there was still a lot of criticism. and we must remember that the past is different from the present. we must remember that the whole spectrum of political opinion is completely different from what it is today. many of the presidents are themselves slave owners. and the president of the united states in the 1830s was a very wealthy slave owner, andrew jackson. we talked about that in an earlier lecture. and jackson denounced abolitionists. he said they were dangerous, they were incendiaries, they were trying to harm the united states, they were trying to harm american society. so this is something that is a hard fight for abolitionists in this generation. and the 19th century has been called by historians the century of emancipation because this fight takes place in many different societies. and it's a hard fight everywhere. and everywhere slave owners fig

was in the united states marine corps. host: where did you serve? caller: i serve for 1963-1967, two years i was in vietnam. i was a grunt. that first caller was totally outrageous. i believe that panetta is doing the right thing because there is something called the uniform code of military justice. we are all prepped about what lines we can and cannot cross when we are involved in a war. there are some incidences that do occur. in this day and age because of the internet, people have easy access to some of these things. when i was in vietnam, we burned down some hootches, way through somebody's on top of them and put lime on top of them but we were in the war. host: when you were in vietnam, were you briefed by your commanding officers or the nco's in your unit about what was and was not acceptable behavior? caller: i was a noncommissioned officer. i was a sergeant. yes, we were briefed by the upper echelon captain and majors and tank commanders. host: more from the article in "the baltimore sun." back to the telephones. florida, william, also retired, go ahead. caller: sometimes you can
that without our courts we simply could not sustain the rule of law in the united states. indeed, open and accessible courts are the cornerstone of a free and democratic society. the framers of our constitution recognized the framers of the courts when they made the judiciaries one of three coequal branches of our federal government. our courts are where we go to have our rights protected, our disputes resolved. our courts, however, need adequate funding to ensure that americans have access to justice. without the access to justice, the fundamental freedoms that we all enjoy and treasurer are profoundly threatened. unfortunately, there has been a troubling trend in our state courts as a result of declining budgets and increasing workload. many of our state courts are seriously underfunded. this is especially disturbing because state judiciary's handle over 95% of all cases processed in this country. courts simply must be open, available, and properly funded and supported. courts are the very guardians of our fundamental freedoms. we must all do our part to sustain them so that they can

of the united states. he is the one that raises the issue. of course it's fair to talk about bain capital. it's important to talk about bain capital because it's important to point out, as the president does, that bain capital was not about creating job. it was about creating wealth profits for his investors and he did a good job at that. while doing that, he was destroying jobs, shutting down plants. the record is clear. he was exporting jobs. he was killing jobs. he was killing pensions. he is a job-killer not a job creator. and corey booker says it's not fair to talk about that? he is dead wrong. you know, corey booker a rising star, but, man, he is not ready for prime time. you know, it's just -- it just drives me crazy, these democrats who feel they want everybody to like them and they have to appeal to both sides. oh, this is nauseating. no, it's not. it's politics, dude. it's hardball. >> that's for corey booker. now then, marco rubio. he wants to be vice president so bad. i mean he's already been to iowa. he gave a speech here on foreign policy.

intelligence agencies and say that they stopped this bomb before it ever made it to the united states. the designer is believed to be top al qaeda explosives expert ibrahim al-asiri. the underwear bomb contained no metal so chances are it could have passed through most security checks. the bomb was found in yemen before the attackers could even buy a plane ticket. >> this is a very clever guy, very good at making bombs. he's probably al qaeda's number one threat to the united states directly. >> i can assure you that the tsa and airport security generally is going to be looking very, very carefully at this to see what steps if any we have to take to upgrade our defenses against this type of attack. >> this country has to continue to remain vigilant against those that would seek to attack this country. >> reporter: you may remember those printer cartridge bombs that were found on u.s. cargo ships back in 2010. well, officials say al-asiri is the man behind those bombs as well. coming up at 5:30, our continued efforts to stop these kind of attacks and they're getting more sophisticated
united states. if greece were to pull out, i think the probability is very high that that would have very serious contagion effects across the eurozone and that that in turn could have a serious impact in the united states and around the world. >> and there's a serious concern today and more people are taking it seriously. >> the problem, charlie, greece has been a problem since the againing. instead of addressing it from the beginning which they should have done, it's gotten worse and worse and worse and now they're finding it difficult to finding a solution. i still think the possibility of greece leaving the eurozone is probably less than 50/50, but even if it stays within the eurozone eurozone, the problems are enormous and that too could create contagion and bank runs ss in spain and elsewhere. if that happens it has the possibility if not for certainty serious impacts here. >> let's talk about your piece today in the journal. you talk about this being the best political environmental for real fiscal action in a lodge time. do you really see something concr
. >> so has there been any official reaction from the united states at this point? >> well, not yet. i mean, some of those demands, as we've been talking about, he's asking for the u.s. to release all prisoners from the taliban and al qaeda. also asking for all drone strikes to stop in afghanistan, pakistan, somalia, and yemen. and going as far as to ease the border between gaza and egypt. so it's not just about al qaeda and taliban, but improving the life of all muslims. but the u.s. says we don't negotiate with terrorists. we are aware of the video. very concerned about his well being and safety. fbi working with the pakistanis but no negotiations with terrorism. if you think back to when the journalist from the "wall street journal" was kidnapped, then secretary of state colin powell said there will be no demands met. we don't negotiate with terrorists. i think the u.s. will stick to that policy. everybody trying to do what they can to locate mr. weinstein, but there won't be any talking with al qaeda about his release. >> let's take a listen to his pleas. >> it's important that you
